Biggest Factor for success
The newly built leadership group at the Stars will be expected to take control of the side early in the season and ensure it doesn’t take the team a few games to find chemistry.
A couple of early season losses may make it hard for the side to come back and contend for the Premiership, especially after a massive list turnover going into the season.
Anna Harrison came out of retirement and will provide the Stars with a great mentor, whilst Wilson has been instrumental in the side’s previous success.
